Raspberry Flowers

Happy Tuesday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life blog. We have been having some crazy, hot weather here in Pittsburgh. But, I love it.
We went swimming in my neighbor's pool on Saturday and the water was so perfect. Sometimes I just put my feet in until my body gets used to the water temp. But when the temp is 96 degrees -it just makes for perfect water conditions.

We also went to watch our grandson play in a baseball tournament on Saturday and Sunday. They lost 1 game and won the other. Again it was hot but perfect baseball weather.

Now onto my card for today. This one I made for the color challenge #383 on Splitcoaststampers. Betty is our hostess and she choice some great colors. This week we got to use one of the new Stampin-Up colors - raspberry ripple. She paired that up with crumb cake and pink pirouette.

I knew as soon as she gave us the colors what stamp set I was going to use. I just love this field flowers set also from Stampin-Up. I stamped the flowers in raspberry ripple. I fussy cut one of them and popped it up for some dimension.

My card layout  is this weeks MojoMonday #249 sketch. I loved working with this layout.

My background designer paper  is Stampin-Up's deck the halls (crumb cake layers) and fan fair collection (pink pirouette layers).

I used the new in-color stitched satin ribbon in raspberry ripple. Also used the Stampin-Up scallop trim border punch to add a pink pirouette layer under the ribbon.

Added my sentiment to a Spellbinder pennant die. I changed the location of the sentiment because my flower images are big.

Some pearls in the corner completed my card.

Well, it's time to close this post so until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1.  Penny Black blog has a summer blooms challenge.
2.  Stampin' Sisters in Christ has a "plan challenge" #147. 1 circle or oval element, 2 different papers, 1 embellishment. See the blog for an excellent commentary of scripture verse from Jeremiah 29:11.
